Busiate Pasta, Radish and Mini Pepper Salad



  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise, plus more as needed
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard, plus more as needed
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning blend
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • PAPA VINCE sea salt, to taste

  • 1 pound pre-cooked and cooled PAPA VINCE Busiate pasta
  • 11/4 cups diced celery, with leaves
  • 1 cup diced carrots (peeling is optional)
  • 3/4 cup chopped red radishes
  • 11/2 cups sweet red, yellow and orange mini peppers, cut into thin rings
  • 2/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon diced Kalamata olives
  • 1 cup cooked white beans drained and rinsed


  • 6 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 8 to 10 mini pepper slices
  • 3 to 4 large red radishes, thinly sliced
  • PAPA VINCE sea salt

Put the cooked and cooled PAPA VINCE Busiate Pasta, celery, carrots, radish, peppers, olives and beans into a large bowl and gently stir with a large spoon to combine.

To make the dressing, put the vegan mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, Italian seasoning and maple syrup in a small bowl and briskly whisk until smooth. Pour the dressing over the salad and gently stir to thoroughly coat. Season with PAPA VINCE sea salt and pepper, to taste. Cover and refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours, or until thoroughly chilled. Serve in a large bowl (family style) or on individual serving plates spooned over a bed of chopped romaine lettuce and garnished with radish slices, more pepper slices and more PAPA VINCE sea salt, if desired.
